Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DELIVERING PRODUCTS TO A CUSTOMER
Abstract:
In some embodiments, apparatuses and methods are provided herein useful to deliver products to a customer at a landmark or rendezvous location, as opposed to a set street or mailing address. In some configurations, a retail product delivery system may include electronic user devices of delivery agents and customers, a shopping user interface and a delivery user interface, and a control circuit. By one approach, the control circuit receives a retail order from a particular customer, monitors individual activity of the particular customer, presents a selection opportunity permitting the particular customer to select a landmark or rendezvous location for delivery of the shipment, and instruct delivery of the shipment to the particular customer at the landmark or rendezvous location. In one aspect, the control circuit facilitates interaction between the electronic user devices of the particular customer and the assigned delivery agent.
